What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Sometimes I feel like I'm caught in a huge web.

It's only a few people who profit from the existing state of affairs. For most people, the "status quo" means being trapped in a massive web and to them it seems like a hopeless task attempting to break free; but as people begin to seek out solutions to their predicament together they become empowered to take action together. It isn't as easy as it seems it would be to free ourselves from this web that has us trapped, but it isn't that difficult either once people are in motion and more and more people figure out what it takes--- united action--- to escape the clutches of these parasites waiting to suck the last drop of blood from us.
